A while back I began a journal, mostly about working at the University. Around the time I realized I'd been here twenty years I found a stash of student diary/calendars in the trash and some website prompts for journaling. I went great guns for a bit but then moved on to other things. I recently worked on it again. Each time I play, I go back and add layers to the first pages and begin a few more. This time I played with printing bubble wrap. All I did was play all day.This page laments our campus news paper (the official one). It's no longer published in a paper version and the online calendar of events just isn't as nice as the printed one. The articles are okay online. I miss my paper. At least the student paper is still publishing. The background is folded paper cutouts from the newspaper that I had made when I began the journal.These are some backgrounds for journaling. Right now I don't have much to say but I'll go back and write in them later. The left-hand page is just paint. The right-hand page is printed tissue paper torn and glued on and painted.The campus itself is mostly neo Gothic but the Law School was designed by Eero Saarinen and the design a diamond motif and sharp angles are used throughout. The brown page below is layers of masking tape painted.

These are really interesting, colourful pages. There are some things for which an online version just won't do, aren't there!
